  • Author Georg Von Welling

    Georg von Welling was born in Schwaben, Bavaria, in 1655. He worked as the director of the BadenDurlacher Office of Building and Mines until 1723 and died in 1725 in Frankfurt. Von Welling was primarily known for his book Opus MagoCabbalisticum et Theosophicum, which influenced numerous subsequent authors and informed much of the tradition of Western Ritual Magick. Joseph McVeigh is a professor of German Studies at Smith College with the interest and skills necessary to translate such an arcane occult classic.

After nearly 300 years, one of the most important alchemical and magical texts of all time has finally been translated into English! DuQuette In Goethe's immortal play, Faust, the brooding hero reflects upon the vainness of earthly knowledge and education. He opens a book of magic and is transfixed by an illustration of the magical universe. He resolves there and then to become a magician. The book that fired Goethe's imagination for that dramatic scene was a real book the book of forbidden knowledge that evoked every mystical cliché Opus Mago-Cabbalisticum et Theosophicum. This first ever English edition of Opus Mago-Cabbalisticum et Theosophicum will appeal to anyone interested in the history or practical aspects of alchemy, astrology, magick, Rosicrucianism, esoteric Freemasonry, and the Golden Dawn. A perfect addition to any library of classic esoteric literature, this edition reproduces famous illustrations.
